Symphony To A Lost Generation

The world’s first feature-length fully holographic dramatic production announces tour dates for 2016. Forces War Records and our sister site Forces Reunited are supporting the company with a donation that will give under privileged children the chance to attend the show and see for themselves what life would have been like during WW1. These children would not normally have the chance to experience a show such as this, so we’re very happy to help.

Actors and dancers ‘appear’ holographically beside the Vienna Philharmonic Choir and Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra in young composer Adam Donan’s epic symphony and drama. Mixing classical music, dance and archival film, this is a 3D audio-visual holographic spectacular. An artistic depiction of the First World War covering monumental battles such as the Somme and Gallipoli as well as telling personal tragedies, this is the first time holographic technology has been used to this scale.

The production is the brainchild of 30 year old Adam Donen, who three years ago, set about creating a new form of ‘total art’, fusing technology with different artforms. With 400 cast members, all appearing in hologram form, the show would be difficult to tour, but using technology means the show can tour across the world.

‘With Symphony to a Lost Generation, I sought to show the living presence of the First World War in our time, and the extent to which the world it created continues to reverberate in our lives today. I sought to make use of every art form and technology at our disposal – holograms in particular – to create a  comprehensive picture of that awful time. I wanted to democratise epic art: to create a work on the scale of  performances in the great capitals’ opera houses that would not remain trapped in such gilded cages, and could be taken to small towns and cities across the world.Adam Donen, composer and director
